Idle = when it's not being used. No commits, no checkouts. I don't think
it grows when there is no network activity. We are not many developers.
15 part time developers. Usually we have 10 - 20 commits a day.

I recycle the svnserve process daily now, but it won't help if there is an
unusual number of commits in a given day. Yesterday this happened. There was
about 45 or so commits. I can't be sure that high memory usage was the cause,
but svnserve stopped servicing svn clients. Svn clients failed with the
following error:

svn Error: Can't read from connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

This morning it worked again, but I suspect this is because the process was
recycled this morning.

The box has 1GB+ of free RAM after boot.
